The Foamposite line might have lost its flavor but Nike dug back into its archives and resurrected the Coppers, the Royals and earlier this year for the first time the “Dr Doom“. The upcoming Nike Air Foamposite Pro Island Green will definitely do well in the nation’s capital , a place known for its affinity for the Foamposite. The colorway is neither dull nor too flamboyant for those of us who like more conservative colors.
The shoes come in a island green upper with black mostly covering the eyestay, the tongue & its extension and the inner sleeve. The customary swoosh logo will be featured on the lateral panel in silver; additional nike branding can be seen near the toe box, the tongue and the heel. . Completing the shoes is a translucent outsole with herringbone threads for traction purposes.
Similar to the previous models, the Nike Air Foamposite Pro Island Green is equipped with carbon fiber shanks near the midfoot area meant to lighten up the weight of the shoes, to allow for quick movements on the court- remember Hardaway use to play in those in 1997, but you will still find players like Markieff Morris, a former member of the Phoenix suns, taking on his opponent with the Foams on his feet.
